Clarksville, TN – On April 12th, 2012 around 10:00am Steve West of Springfield Tennessee was driving a Recreational Vehicle south on International Boulevard when it burst into flames. He safely exited the vehicle and contacted emergency services.
Saint Bethlehem Volunteer Fire Department responded and began to attack the fire which was at that time fully engaged; the column of smoke could be seen from several miles away. Montgomery County EMS unit Medic 22 also dispatched to provide medical assistance if it was needed. Montgomery County Sheriff Deputies Sgt. Jimmy Brown and Lt. John Smith arrived and together secured both of the roads leading to the scene.
When they realized that the fire was larger than they were prepared to handle by themselves, they requested Mutual Aid from Clarksville Fire Rescue (CFR).
The Austin Peay State University Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts and the Customs House Museum will present the independent film “Visual Acoustics: The Modernism of Julius Schulman” at 2 p.m., Feb. 6, in the Clement Auditorium on the APSU campus. Following the film, audience members will be able to ask questions of the director, Eric Bricker. This event, which is part of The Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers, is free for Austin Peay students with an ID and $2 at the door for the general public.
Narrated by Dustin Hoffman, “Visual Acoustics” explores the monumental career of architectural photographer Julius Shulman who died on July 15, 2009, at the age of 99. Populating his photos with human models and striking landscapes, Shulman combined the organic with the synthetic, melding nature with revolutionary urban design. The resulting images helped to shape the careers of some of the greatest architects of the 20th Century, with Shulman documenting the work of Richard Neutra, Rudolph Schindler, Pierre Koening, John Lautner, and many others.
